Rosaria Butterfield*

Rosaria was once a tenured professor of English who identified as a lesbian and worked to advance the cause of LGBT equality. After her conversion to Christ in 1999, she came to see the sinfulness of having any identity apart from Him. Today she is a pastor’s wife, homeschool mom, author, and speaker. Rosaria writes about sexuality, identity, Christian hospitality and community, and seeks to encourage all in faithful Christian living and service. Her conversion memoir is titled The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert. She addresses the lost art of Christian hospitality in her more recent book, The Gospel Comes with a House Key and Five Lies of Our Anti-Christian Age (Coming in October 2022). Rosaria and her husband, Kent, live in North Carolina.
